What is the Difference?

With so much misinformation on the internet about CBD oil, one of the most common questions we get from consumers is in regards to the difference of CBD from hemp vs CBD from marijuana.

Many prospective cannabis consumers are surprised by the number of similarities between hemp and marijuana. However, the resemblance should come as little surprise, since both hemp and marijuana are versions of the Cannabis Sativa L. plant. 

For CANNABIS to be legally considered HEMP, it must contain no more than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) per dry weight Image by cytis from Pixabay.

MARIJUNA is a cannabis plant that is most frequently harvested for its euphoric, psychoactive properties, which are responsible for making users feel high or stoned. The fibers and stalks of marijuana are not used commercially. Instead, the marijuana plant is cultivated specifically for its flowers, which contain the highest levels of THC in the plant.

HEMP is a cannabis plant that is harvested commercially for its seeds and stalks. Seeds and stalks are used to produce a number of products: including food, nutritional supplements, medicine, body care products, paper, textiles, building materials, plastic composites, and even biofuels. Depending on which parts of the plant hemp oil is made from the amount of CBD will vary, producing everything from nutritious hemp foods to hemp seed oil to rich CBD oil.

Because it thrives under natural conditions, hemp is typically grown outside, with both male and female plants sown closely together to encourage wind pollination and increase seed production. The hemp plant grows sturdy and tall, up to 2 to 4 meters in height, without the need for herbicides or pesticides.

For CANNABIS to be legally considered HEMP, it must contain no more than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) per dry weight. THC is the active compound in marijuana that causes its euphoric effect. The level of THC in hemp is 33 times less than the least potent marijuana strains, so it’s impossible for hemp to get a user “high.”

Unlike marijuana, hemp is naturally higher in cannabidiol (CBD), one of over 85 cannabinoids that have so far been identified in the cannabis plant. CBD is non-psychoactive and therefore won’t cause a high, making it safe for use by anyone, regardless of age.

One of the misconceptions about CBD hemp oil products is that CBD from hemp oil is less potent than cannabis oil or CBD oil made from medical marijuana. While it is true that the percentage of CBD in hemp plants by dry weight is lower than the percentage of CBD in some specially bred marijuana plants, once the oil is extracted from the plant, this difference becomes negligible.

Your CBD Store in Petaluma carries CBD hemp oil that is grown free of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides and extracted using a supercritical CO2 process regarded by the FDA as safe. Our hemp oil is also Independent Third Party Tested during our cultivation, extraction, and manufacturing processes to ensure our oil’s quality and protect the health of our customers. 

Products made from hemp oil have the potential to be cleaner and purer than medical marijuana products.

Because CBD hemp oil products are legal in all 50 states, they fill an important role for those who can’t access medical marijuana in their state.
